Somewhat ironically, my favourite thing about having flowers in the garden is picking them to fill vases, jugs and bottles to put in our house. I certainly don't have a natural eye for floristry, but they say practice makes perfect- and luckily for me I have a fair few flowers left to practice with before I've picked them all!
But what to do when over-zealous flower-picking and/or autumn means there are no flowers left for me to put in the house? As you've probably guessed by now, I'm not a fan of spending money on things I consider expensive, and flowers cost loads of money and then die.
The tutorial and pattern for these stunning paper flowers can be found here. It looks quite time-consuming, but certainly not difficult. The perfect in-front-of-the-TV craft, I reckon!
How do you feel about displaying flowers in your home? If you display them, do you prefer real or fake flowers?
